Hey everyone!! I know I have been soooooooo absent recently! I have been working hard honest! Unfortunately not crafting though, I have been busy at work whilst hubby has been recovering from his op, he seems to be doing ok now after a pretty painful week but he is slowly on the mend.
I have a valued 2 days off, having worked the last 5 days and am back to work again tomorrow for the next 4 days.
However, it is challenge time again at Creative Inspirations and we want you to use Traditional Christmas colours (I am late with this sorry ladies internet was running super slow this morning!)
But I have not made a card this time (ooo shock!) I am becoming more and more inspired by xmas crafts around the home and lots of handmade goodies I am spying on Pinterest and facebook which i want to try my hand at so today I have a plaque to show you.
I am afraid I can't remember where I bought the plaque from, it was in a set of 3 and they really weren't expensive, just MDF plaques. I used some Gesso to prime and some white acrylic paint on the plaque which I then stamped with a magnolia snowflake stamp in Picket fence Distress ink and also inked the edges in vintage photo. I have used flowers and wooden reindeer embellishment from Wild orchids, rub on letters from KI and the rest from stash.
This was so super easy to make and it beats buying one right?! I am loving the idea of a handmade christmas!
Do check out what the rest of my teamies have made with the stunning traditional xmas colours!
Thanks so much for coming by my blog, despite my lack of blogging!
Don't forget there is a sparkly new challenge at Divas by design today too!
